I do, however, agree with the people who say that you have to have a teeny bit of Hulk lore and Hulk-centric characters under your belt to really appreciate what's happening with this story.
This is NOT a jumping-off point for readers who are new to comics or new to this character.


But. You don't need to have kept up with every Hulk comic ever made to get the gist of what's happening here. <--I certainly haven't done that, and I didn't feel the least bit lost.

Emaciated and pissed off, the Hulk fights for his life in hell!

Immortal Hulk: Hulk in Hell collects Immortal Hulk #11-15. Hulk in Hell picks up where the last volume left off, with the Hulk in Hell, facing off hordes of enemies, including his father.

Al Ewing's horror take on The Hulk continues to amaze me. It reminds of of Swamp Thing, both the Len Wein-Bernie Wrightson version and Alan Moore's take on the character. It's a smart book and more than the Hulk beating the shit out of things, althou

While I'm still digging this version of Hulk, I didn't feel the storytelling was as clear in this arc. There's lots of proselytizing and psychobabble as Hulk wonders through Hell. I was lost through a lot of it. Pretty much all of Bruce Banner's supporting cast of the past make appearances. If you don't know Hulk's relationships to these characters, you may have some difficulties. Bennett's art continues to impress. He draws one scary looking Hulk. ...more

This might be my favorite hulk comic ever made.

So the first volume 1 was good. Volume 2 had a lot of great moments. Volume 3? Hulk in hell? Hulk talking about who he truly is. Finding out what happened to Ross. Hulk going berserk when a close one to him dies. What did Hulk learn in hell? This is demon hulk after all and his mission has not changed. He is here to end the world. But...something is happening. Questions of who he is and why he is.

This is one of the most compelling volumes of hulk

This was a weaker volume of Immortal Hulk, and this may in part be my fault — I really don't know that much about Hulk's regular lore and supporting characters, and this book banked hard on previously established relationships between Bruce and them. I felt kinda lost for most of this volume. Ewing's writing steered away from the horror-centric, mostly standalone story to a more continuity-dependent one, and the underlying existential terror that's been there from issue 1 got replaced with some ...more

This is a great title. A good mix of speculative writing using Hulk and company as the characters to deliver the goods. Also this is a series that can be enjoyed without being up to date in the marvel universe since the story is so personal to the Hulk's character.

'and so I ask again. What is the Hulk? What will the Hulk be? The accuser or the adversary? Khamael or Satan? Is he of the Geburah or of the Golachub? Is he man or monster? What will you become, Bruce Banner of Earth? Who are you? And
I'm really enjoying this horror take on the Hulk. It's nothing simple or cheesy. It's complex, Jungian, and most fascinatingly Qabalistic! Scratch what I said about the basic Freudian mystery, this is going all the way into the deeper mysteries.

The green door? Sure, you could call it hell, but possibly it's only the collective unconscious.

And Bruce? We're getting into the nitty gritty of a full-blown Dissociative Identity Disorder. Daddy issues? Yep, them too. And best yet, the Greeny is growi

As the Hulk makes his way through Hell to face off against The One Below All, new secrets are revealed and the true enemy makes himself known in this third volume of Immortal Hulk.

Al Ewing's got a game plan, and nothing's gunna dissuade him from it, I don't think. This series is so expertly plotted, pulling in plot threads from years and years of Hulk history and hammering home that this is a story a long time in the making, even if we didn't know it yet. The revelations that take place and the

This is one of the strongest series running these days. If you thought the story was off-the-rails before, you haven't seen anything yet. Hulk goes to hell and we learn quite a lot about him and his relationship to Bruce Banner. The storytelling and art are top-notch. ...more

This series is still going strong, and it's the only current Marvel series that I read ASAP. There are a ton of reasons why this is so good and they are mainly spelled out in my reviews for the previous volumes, so I'll just focus on a few of the things I didn't particularly care for in this volume:

They wrapped up the "Hulk in hell" storyline a little too quickly. They were teasing his dad being a villain since the very beginning, and it ended up kind of being a non-event.

Hell is astonishingly boring . . . especially when packed with Qabalah lessons and populated with people we know won't be there very long since they're immortal. I mean, it's right there in the title. And it has gone beyond just the Hulk, as almost no one in this series can seem to stay dead for very long.

I have the next volume cued up already, but I'm not sure I'll be sticking with this series much longer.

Al Ewing you mad genius. This is absolutely brilliant. Probably one of the best books Marvel is putting out right now!

Al Ewing lays it on a bit thick with all the text on Zoroastrianism and Qabalah. It's all important to the series' overall themes, but it's delivered in such a heavy-handed manner, stating those themes outright rather than developing them through the story and characters. If the early issues of "Immortal Hulk" occasionally felt like a solid imitation of Alan Moore's "Swamp Thing," these issues often feel like a mediocre imitation of Moore's "Promethea." Luckily, Joe Bennet's artwork keeps things ...more

This series continues to amaze me. Same as the previous volumes, everything is top-notch. Al Ewing continues to write an amazing hulk story. To me, this is one of the greatest marvel stories this decade.
Dakota Morgan
I get that Al Ewing's Hulk series is trying to be deep and dark and weird, but it's doing all of those things to the point of obnoxiousness. Numerous pages in Hulk in Hell are spent with a mysterious narrator explaining various cultures' and religions' Hell myths. Cool! What does this have to do with the Hulk? Not super clear. I guess maybe he's the Devil? The title tells me that he's in Hell, but he really? It's never quite clear what's going on with the Green Door.

This volume concludes the story from Volumes 1 and 2 about half way into this volume, a bit of a tame ending tbh. Then it changes in a poor direction. The whole Betty and Bruce thing really turns me away. It's been done to death and is shit. Really shit.

I notice some changes in artwork as well which went downhill.
Shannon Appelcline
Al Ewin's Hulk continues to be one of the weirdest, most thoughtful, and most amazing runs ever. This volume is even weirder than most, with the first three issues set in "Hell" and full of captions and backstory. It's a little over-the-top at time, but also deeply insightful. The rest of the book has a bit more normalcy to it, but continues to advance Ewing's amazing plot. [4+/5]. ...more

I didnt seem to like this as much as the previous volumes. I felt lost all the way through.
What began as a promising series devolves into unintelligible psycho-babble with no real story.

Well I'm all in on Immortal Hulk. This is a fantastic, maximalist philosophy course, even before it's a thrilling horror mystery. This could be a Stephen King novel, and I tip my hat to Ewing for truly bringing something fundementally new and brilliant to an iconic, long-standing pop culture icon. ...more

Immortal Hulk volume 3 takes it and turns it up to eleven.

And I love it. Every issue of this keeps getting better for me and Devil Hulk is great. How Banner changes between the three primary personalities depending on the time of the day and what happens to him fascinates me.

The exploration of love and pain and what Banner makes to be the relationship between the two drives the story in such a way that it kept me glued to the page.

The tying in of the larger Marvel universe is my least favorite p

Well, then.

Al Ewing is putting together an IMMORTAL run on Hulk, with this volume's KooKoo Bananas riffing on Qabbalah, Zoroastrianism and yet more Body Horror keeping the standard ludicrously high.

If you like the Jade Giant even a little don't sleep on this series, folks.

Hulk in Hell is the best arc in this book to date, but I feel like it was a little short, it doesn't flow well into the last couple of issues of this volume. Still, a great storyline with some really gruesome and disgusting imagery. Ewing and his illustrators have truly transformed Hulk and everything around him into something new and interesting and horrific. ...more
I liked vol1 and really liked vol2, but vol3 was difficult to finish. These issues seem to assume I have an encyclopedic grasp of past Hulk comics; knowing and having deep feelings about Hulk’s daddy issues and gamma lore feels like a pre-req to even considering reading this, to say nothing of all the plots points with characters like Doc Samson and Rick Jones. But even if I knew all of that, I doubt I’d enjoy these.

Aside from wallowing in self-serious comic book rabbit hole details that don’t m

This is a pretty solid volume but really falters with the second to last issue. The art really took me out of it and made me feel like I was stuck in a bad 90s comic. Add to this Betty's constantly angry glare and I was really put off. Oh and fridging a female character? Seriously? Maybe it really was just one bad issue from the 90s jammed in an otherwise enjoyable book. ...more

Other people love this series but this is the volume I gave up. The first issues in this volume were trying to be all philosophical and "what is hell? what is Hulk? What is evil? What is the shadow of God" and I really hated them. And then the last part was...Doc Sampson trying to talk to Hulk. Nothing happens and I have lost interest. ...more

Between the multiple story arcs, multiple artists, and multiple call-backs to Hulk stories of yore, this third volume is a mess.

There were undoubtedly some strong moments. The conversation between Black woman Jackie McGee and the Hulk about her envy for his ability to express his anger openly as a white man was spot effing on. But otherwise this volume is all over the place in terms of quality and tone.

Writer Al Ewing’s heavy-handed mysticism rings hollow and tries too hard to make this storyl
